About Author Ngaire Elder:
Ngaire Elder was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland and spent most of her childhood playing outside with her brother and imaginary friends and feasting on my granny's homecooking.
Fond memories include the magpie that followed me around my garden one summer and the day grandpa found the wild bunnies which I had captured and hidden in my bedroom.
After leaving school she went to college and university (part-time) and embarked on a career in the health and safety sector, qualifying in 1993.
Through her work she met her husband and they now have four children. Time is now spent looking after family, taking care of our collection of animals (3 dogs, 1 cat, 2 horses, 2 pigs, 3 ferrets and 1 budgie), nurturing our kitchen garden, learning Spanish, speaking Spanish, reading and writing.

What customers are saying about The Mystical Mountains of Terra:
~ I will say that the plot for this book was more complex and personally, I found it even more fun than Cecilia's first adventure. (Amazon Review)
~ Ractus the Armadillo was probably my favorite, maybe because he could be a little grumpy and high-strung, but in a lovable way. (Amazon Review)
~ From the mountains to the swamps, wizards and minimorphosises, gems and flying rafts, the flow and energy of this story is humorous, consistent and charming. (Amazon Review)
